    track heading and effect fonts blurry on 1920x1080 tv monitor via hdmi

    I connected my laptop to a 1920x1280  hdtv, and am using the DVI connector from the computer to  the  HDMI connector on the tv.

    Running XP Pro SP3 with  my screen resolution adjusted to 1920 x 1080. the desktop icon's are very sharp, I load MC5 and the menu items are sharp, even the tool tips are sharp.

    However, the track name letters, the file names on the clips, and the wording in the effects editor are unclear and barely readable.

    I was wondering of anyonw else has this issue, and if there is a way to adjust the clarity of the effect font settings, etc.

    I don't think it is a windows setting as Word displays very clear, and like I said, MC5's menu items are also clear, as are the fonts in MC5 help.

    Thanks.

    Like Liquid, MC has a control for changing the resolution of the video displayed for performance. It's called the Video Quality Menu and the icon is a small yeelow and/or green square at the bottom of the timeline. It has 3 modes, Yellow (lowest resolution/fastest response), Yellow/Green (the default), and Green (best resolution). Try changing it to best resolution and see if that helps.

    Thanks Dave.

    It's not really the video that is not clear  (although I have tred the green resolution setting to see if that cleared up the issue - and it didn't) , but it is really the fonts displayed in the effects editor.  If I go to a menu item on the top bar, all the fonts on the drop downs are very sharp. So are the icons on the timeline and source/record monitors.   But when I open up an effect in the effect editor, I just can't read the fonts very clearly.

    I think it may have to do with the display modes on the tv itself.  I can get the font's clearer in certain modes, but those modes don't display the full  PC screen. I want to give it one more try with a DVI to vga connector that I loaned out after I got the HDMI connectors. I am not sure I can get it resolved with that, but it's worth a try.  I haven't found any settings in  MC to adjust those font dislays.

    OK. If you display the same fonts on a regular monitor, do they still look blurry by comparison?

    No - perfectly clear.
